    In the process of setting up a darkroom, I happened upon a nice looking, almost new condenser, however I'm pretty sure it doesn't fit a Beseler 45 V XL, Zone VI 5X7 type 2 or the Durst laborator 1200.

    There is no manufacturers name on it and here are the clues. On the front where the handle to pull it out is, there is stamped in the metal:

    60X60 F135 BOTTOM

    It measures approximately 3 3/4" X 3 1/4".

    I Think it came from the place where I got the Zone VI.

    Any ideas what it might fit as it needs to reside where it will be used.

    That really looks like a condensor for a Philips PCS 130 or 6x6 film.

    I have one but do not need that condensor. If I was near my enlarger I'd go read the numbers to be sure but it looks familiar.

    Hmm, I have passed a number of smaller enlargers off to others over the past couple of years because I didn't need them. Seems like one was a Phillips that I got when I bought most of a wet darkroom that included the Zone VI. Now, if I can just figure out who I passed the Phillips onto. Thanks for clearing this up. I would not have even thought of that being a possibility. Bill Barber
